Abstract

In this paper, the outdoor microcellular radio propagation characteristics at 3.5 GHz are simulated and analyzed by the method of SBR/Image (Shooting and bouncing ray tracing/Image). A good agreement is achieved between the results simulated and the results given in published literature. So the correctness of the method has been validated. Some simulated propagation parameters of LOS (Line-of-sight) and NLOS (None-line-of-sight) have been compared. The analysis of the above results provides the foundation for the coverage of outdoor microcellular systems.
